Disneyland Cast Members have had a difficult time lately as Disney has laid off 28,000 employees. Approximately 10,000 of those layoffs came from Disneyland in major part due to California not allowing larger theme parks to reopen.
Recently, Disneyland Cast Members received some good news! The Workers United Local 50 union shared the following post on their official Facebook page.
The full post reads:
“Recall from furlough update 11/17,
For the expansion of Downtown Disney into Buena Vista Street over 30 more Local 50 members will be recalled back to work. 11 ODV, 14 QSR and 6 TSR. Recall will happen for 11/29 return to work
Notification will by phone call, but may not be a normal Disneyland 714 area code phone number. If you don’t answer your phone when the company calls, they will leave a voice mail for you to return ASAP and will call one more no sooner than 45 minutes later. After that they will move on to the next person in seniority order. Please make sure your voicemail box is able to receive a message. When being contacted for recall members will be notified of the position they will be filling.
Recall in each scheduling group will be by job classification (steward, food prep, receiver, etc.) in descending seniority order regardless of location job knowledge. Recall for premium positions, such as leads and trainers, will be in descending seniority order by Full Time conversion dates.
A few weeks ago, we posted the summary of the recall process and it is pinned to the top of our Facebook page. If you have any questions after you have reviewed please contact us.
Previously, over 200 Local 50 workers had been recalled to work at the Disneyland Resort to staff the reopening of Buena Vista Street. Now, over 30 more will be returning to work as well.
We are so happy that more Cast Members are finally getting to go back to work!
